Bringing together a wide range of interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives and international case studies from local and regional levels, this book explores some of the contradictory yet simultaneous processes affecting border regions along the south-east borders of the European Union and between the United States and Mexico. In doing so, it offers a useful matrix for understanding the complex, multilayered implications embedded in border/boundary redefinition processes.
